God Bless America. Someone Has To!
A Commentary by Linda McKellar
Posted July 17th, 2019 on Niagara At Large
I will never understand how people can claim to be “Christian Evangelicals” while at the same time be so racist and so full of hate.
That does not reflect the god that most people believe in. Since Trump’s mother was born in Scotland, the Isle of Lewis, should he go back there? Poor Scotland!!!!!!
He is no further removed from a foreign land than three of these women. Since his current and past wife were immigrants, (the current one working without documentation before her citizenship) should HIS wives go back to where they came from and take Trump’s spawn with them?
He also managed to get Melania’s parents into the country….so much for his hatred of and pledge to stop chain immigration. Of course both were essential to the economy….elderly… the father a car salesman and the mother a factory seamstress.
Furthermore, his grandfather Frederick Christ Drumph (his real name) emigrated from Germany ILLEGALLY because he did not serve his two years of mandatory military service during the Franco Prussian War. When he arrived at Ellis Island he listed his occupation as “none”!
How did he get in?
Of course he soon found a job. He opened brothels in the NW and later in the Yukon during the Gold Rush, under the guise of a restaurateur. He advertised “rooms for women”, a euphemism for prostitution. Illegal then, illegal now.
Perhaps this is where Trump should mention his friend Jeffery Epstein, billionaire child molester. He also sold "fresh meat" from the “Dead Horse Trail” where miners worked horses to death and he would collect and sell the carrion. Yum!
Donnie’s father was charged with housing discrimination (racism). Also, since his projects were public housing, they were basically paid for by the government….welfare for a wealthy developer.
He was also arrested in the 20’s during a KKK march in NYC. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
- The Charlottesville NAZI march – Good people.
- Chanting “Jews will not replace us” at the same march – Now he condemns these women as anti Semetic.
- Central Park five. Execute them. Oops, they were innocent… but they were black. –
- Obama was born in Kenya. When did Kenya annex Hawaii? –
- Calling black athletes SOB’s. –
- Why don’t we get more immigrants from Norway?
Those are but a few of his remarks.
He also said “the “Squad used vulgar, disgusting words,” the very same words Trump used in his rallies.
He has said mother f***** more than once. He appears unaware of video. He said these women criticized the US and don’t love it.
His entire campaign centered on what a "mess" the US was and that cities were “hell holes”. He even called it a third world country! These women didn’t come close to that but they must leave because “they don’t love America.”
Of course the spineless Republicans almost unanimously stood behind him. Is it so hard to say “racist”?
They said the Republicans never disrespected the office of President as the Democrats are doing. Is that why they shouted “You lie” during Obama’s State of the Union address or in rallies said he needed to go back to Kenya…and worse?
Some blatantly called him a “N***er”. When Kelly Ann Conway was asked if the remark was racist she said to the reporter…” What is YOUR ethnicity?”
What does that have to do with it?
When Mitch McConnell (Mr Turtle) was asked whether he would consider the remark racist because his wife was born in China he said he supported legal immigration?
Again what does that have to do with the question?
Three years ago Lindsey Graham called him a racist. Now he’s done a 180. Why? Power? Re-election by bigoted constituents?
These women are exactly what Trump and his minions both fear and hate, non white, educated and, god forbid, women with principles. Sorry for the tirade but I’m SO sick of this rampant gutlessness and stupidity. I fear for the US.
What’s next? Riots? A Civil War? Dictatorship?
God bless America. Someone has to.
